Seite 80 - The battles you have fought under my command will proudly live in our nation's history. The glory you have achieved, our mutual perils and fatigues, the graves of our comrades fallen in battle, and by disease, the broken forms of those whom wounds and sickness have disabled,— the strongest associations which can exist among men, — unite us still by an indissoluble tie.
